Diamond Fret Levelers

About This Item

Industrial diamond-coated steel blocks. Excellent for putting a razor edge on chisels and knives, we discovered they're also great for leveling frets!

These diamond-coated steel blocks are manufactured as tool sharpeners. Available in three models, the cutting surfaces are a bit finer than our other diamond-coated fretting tools. They always remain flat, and won't break, chip or crack.

Each leveler is 6" x 2" x 1/4" (152.40mm x 50.80mm x 6.35mm).

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

For Me, a One Trick Pony

I bought the coarse grit file and wanted to use this for leveling, but found I still prefer my mill files. I found the large width of the file a bit cumbersome for moving across the arc of the frets. However, for flattening the radius on the higher frets to eliminate buzzing/fretting out, this thing is *perfect*. The width covers just about the whole length of the frets, so if you hold it in the center while you file, you'll only take off the high part of the radius in the middle while leaving the lower outside parts alone. You just hold it in that one position, file back and forth, and you can go as little or as much as you want depending on how flat you want to make the frets. With a narrower file, this job takes a lot more finesse to get it perfect. This tool basically does it for you. For flattening the arc of the frets to help eliminate that infamous high E string fretting out when you bend, this file is a dream. I know that's a specific job, but for how well, how quickly and how conveniently it works -- and how often it's useful (very often) -- it's worth it to me for that alone. If you're comfortable using it for standard fretwork too, then that's even better. But despite preferring my mill files most of the time, I don't regret buying this file at all just because it does this one thing so well. In my opinion this is a great addition to any collection of fretworking tools.
